System Requirements for Cubit Estimating

Follow

This document provides the system requirements when deploying and running Cubit Estimating in either of its three licence types Standalone, Network or Terminal.

All installations should be performed in consultation with your IT service provider.

 

Standalone Licence

The Standalone Licence is designed to be used on any independent standalone computer.

 

  Minimum Recommended
Operating System Windows 10 20H2 or above for desktop installation
Memory/Installed RAM 4 GB available to Cubit Estimating 8-16 GB available to Cubit Estimating
Dedicated Graphics Card 256MB Ram Supporting OpenGL 2.0 or higher 2GB Ram Supporting OpenGL 2.0 or higher
Hard Drive HDD/SSD SSD
Storage 5GB free space 50GB free space

 

Note: The minimum and recommended specifications are guidelines, if dealing with large plans and models you may need to exceed the recommended specification.


Network Licence


The Cubit Estimating Network Licence is designed to be used in a network environment where multiple computers will connect to a common database installed on a nominated Cubit Estimating sever.

The typical deployment method for a network requires a server-side install (Cubit Estimating Server) to be installed on a Windows Server and client-side (Cubit Estimating client) installed on the user’s Windows computer.  Separating these two components represents a two-tier architecture.
